Renowned for its paradise-like beauty, Mount Wuyi is blanketed in lush rainforest, full of ancient and endemic plant life and unusually rich biodiversity. It towers over the crystalline Nine-Bend Stream above sheer, pale cliffs and steep gorges, one of the most stunning nature reserves in the world. Amongst the tall bamboo and swirling mountain mist, the Wuyi Palace is to be found, built in the 7th Century as a sacrificial temple for use only by emperors. Built during the Tang Dynasty, it is in fact a temple complex, with sweeping, curved pagoda roofs and wonderful, bright colours. The ancient city of Chengcun is also to be found here, dating back to the Western Han Dynasty.
